    No dif in accuracy. Their accuracy is as good as the person behind the trigger. Even though there is only an inch dif in the two the Ultra is my fave for comfort.

    Read a couple reviews that said the ultra kicks like a mule. I have large hands and strong forearms (wrench turner) and recoil isn't an issue for me, but how does it do in that regard? Without a checkered front strap especially.

    Here's your answer...
    I had three Kimbers, a Pro, a Compact, and an Ultra.
    All were great guns, but the Compact gives you the barrel length (of the Pro) that is to your advantage, and the shorter grip (of the Ultra) which helps to conceal the firearm. It's the best of both worlds.

    I have a full size Kimber custom eclipse and a 3" ultra eclipse. The full size which I purchased new has functioned flawlessly. The 3 " purchased used
    had some FTE's until I replaced the extractor and has been 100% since. Both are very accurate. 3" has more kick but not enough to be of concern to me.
    Due to my size the full size is difficult to conceal in the summer. For me conceal-ability would mean getting the 3". I would have no other concerns.

    I appreciate this and will definitely spend some time with it before making a purchase.

    I appreciate this also. Yea, it seems like I may be replacing some parts right off the bat including the extractor (wilson bullet proof), slide catch (also bulletproof) and main spring housing. Hopefully, those parts will eliminate any would be failures.

    The internet is a slippery place. You read people who love Kimber and people who hate them. Same with the Para I bought. I have been pleasantly surprised with the Para, I hope the Kimber will do the same.

    Brother mine is no more noticable than my PCII. Now a bud of mine picked up SA Ultra 1911 and I call it the mule.

    Not that anyone probably cares, but I did end up going with the Kimber Pro Carry. I pick it up tomorrow!

    Reasons were as follows:
    1. Prefer the longer barrel
    2. Better grip on the longer frame for my hands
    3. Price was $100 less
    4. All of the above!

    The shorter gun is easier to conceal...

    I have a Kimber Pro CDP and a Colt Defender, which is a 3 inch gun equivalent to the Kimber Ultra. I have carried both, and find the 3 incher easier to conceal, because of the shorter grip and slide. They both are reliable, and both are plenty accurate, so the three incher is not at a disadvantage there. And I can get all my fingers on either one's grip, so that is not a factor. At this point I carry the 3 inch gun the most, for the reasons above.

    I switched from EDC Glock 23 to the Kimber Pro Carry II then after about a year I obtained a Ultra RCP II and it has become my EDC. All in .45 ACP. I kept my Glocks as I like the platform but those damm 1911's keep calling me back.

    I have even switch from my IDPA gun a Glock 35 to a S&W 1911 9mm Pro, just to keep the platforms the same, 1911 style.

    Congrats. I doubt you will regret it.

    Obligatory Gun Porn.....

    I had a compact in my hand (the one with the smaller frame but 4" barrel but didn't like the balance point on the gun and my pinky hangs off the grip. This one fits me perfect. I am stoked! Only things I plan to change is the slide catch and extractor for Wilson Bullet Proof units. Other than that, this is PERFECT. I really like my Kimber so far. Range report this afternoon.

    Nice looking pistol.

    The only things I changed on mine were the grips, it wears sand VZ operators now, and I installed an Ed Brown flat mainspring housing.
